THE National Tamil School Teachers Association has called for plans to be drawn up to make teaching an attractive profession to overcome the shortage of teachers in the country, reported Tamil Nesan. 

The daily quoted association president Shahul Hamid Mydin Shah as saying that more people would become teachers if the profession was more attractive and challenging.  

He said the association would meet Education Ministry parliamentary secretary P. Komala Krishnamoorthy on May 21 to discuss several issues affecting teachers. It also plans to meet Education Minister Datuk Hishammuddin Tun Hussein. 

Shahul Hamid said the association had proposed that teachers be trained to teach and organise programmes which would instil discipline and moral values in students. 

Both Malaysia Nanban and Tamil Nesan highlighted the attack on lawyer P. Uthayakumar by unidentified assailants.  

The reports said that two groups stopped his car in Jalan Maarof, Bangsar, and threatened him at gunpoint.
